‘Cab for two please…I mean three!’ Baby born in taxi

As you may recall we wrote a blog about Lymmited Taxi’s very own superheroes! Looks like we’re not alone, here’s a recent story about a fellow superhero (ahem, I mean Taxi Driver) in Swansea!

A Swansea taxi driver had a surprise passenger last week – a baby born in the back seat.

Steve Storton, 63, picked up expectant parents Kai Huang, 26 and Quix India, 25, from their home in Townill, Swansea.

“My wife started experiencing some painful contractions so we phoned the hospital and they told us to get her to the hospital immediately.We then phoned a taxi and it arrived within five minutes. The baby came really quickly and half way to the hospital the driver had to pull over as the baby was born before the ambulance arrived.”

Her partner Kai Huang helped her to give birth before Steve delivered the the 8lb 2oz baby and parents to Swansea’s Singleton Hospital.

“I just couldn’t look in the back of the car because I have a really weak stomach. When we arrived at the hospital the midwife wrapped the baby in a warm blanket and cut the umbilical cord. It was just remarkable, like something you would see on an American film.”

The happy couple named their new baby ‘Hackney London’… only kidding! We wish Kai and Quix all the best with their new arrival! Wonder if the new bundle of joy will get free cab rides for life?
On that note, we’re off to study midwifery, never know when the skills may come in handy!! 😀
